Hi I'm Sarah Behlke

I'm from Cleveland, Ohio. I'm a college student. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest and only girl of three. Growing up with brothers I learned to love sports, especially baseball and basketball. Besides being a sports lover, I am a dog lover. Laughing is my favorite past time. I'm a senior in college and planning to get my undergrad in sociology. After that, I want to get a Master's in Social Work. Currently I am serving a full-time mission for the church in the Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon, but have learned for myself over time how true the church is. I know Joseph Smith was a prophet. I believe this church is Christ's church on the Earth today, and that as we follow Him we feel peace and joy. I know my Savior lives. He died for mys sins because despite all my imperfections, He loves me. He and my Heavenly Father know me. They are aware of me an d the personal trials that I face. They are able to love each and every one of us with a love so complete and perfect that we aren't capable of understanding it yet. Knowing all this doesn't make my life perfect, but it makes is purposeful. I still have trials and hard times, but feel the Lord blessing me through them. Relying on the Savior helps me to gain strength I couldn't gain on my own. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live. They know us, they love us, and are always reaching out to us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving as a full-time missionary. I spend all day of everyday for 18 months inviting others to come to Christ. I teach them about the gospel, answer any questions they have, and come to love them the way the Savior did as I teach them. I live my faith by teaching people about it all the time and inviting them to feel the joy of the gospel.
